Delonghi PAC T140 HPEC wont cool, when in AC MODE

Hello, it's close to Summer in California and my girlfriend and I happen to live in an old apartment with poor insulation. It's gets HOT on medium temp days. We bought a USED Delonghi PAC T140 HPEC off of some one on craigslist. We since haven't been able to contact the previous owners, in regards to the recent issues. WE NEED YOUR HELP. The appliance simply wont cool down(even after clearing all existing dust from the inside.) We didn't recieve a remote so the appliance doesn't reach any lower than 64* and even at that it doesn't go chill the air like it once did. How can we fix this?

Hoses for proper connection should have been included with your purchase. Without the hoses the set-up can not be done satisfactory. One is for fresh air supply and the other is the hot air exit hose. These are normally vented out a window. Check with the dealer where you perchased the unit from. If from a private individual contact them.

SOURCE: DeLonghi PAC A120E Pinguino 12,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioner - Water Leakage Problem

I had the same problem and found a fairly simple solution. UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST. All left and right reference below is as view from the BACK of the unit (NOT from the front). Open the right side panel (right as view from the back), by removing six screws (remove screw covers first) and pull down on the panel to remove. Towards the UPPER-back of the unit, there is a cold air evaporator(?)(bunch of tubes and fins) you can only see the edge of it after removing the right panel. Below it is a white plastic drip tray with a hole at the end allowing water to pass down to the lower warm air radiator(?) (another bunch of tubes and fins) to evaporate. If this hole is obstructed, water will over flow and leak. I cleaned out the hole with a vacuum attached to a drinking straw, you might have a better way. After cleaning, I poured a little water through to make sure it drains. There is a lower drip tray at the bottom of the unit which catches the water and you can drain it out the bottom drain hole by unplugging the rubber stopper at the back bottom of the unit. The lower drip tray has a float switch (you can only see it by removing the back panel, which you don't have to do for this procedure) which turns off the unit when the lower tray is full. So, theoretically, even if the evaporation is not working properly, as long as the upper drain hole is not obstructed, there should not be any leakage, because the water will drain into the lower drip tray and turn the unit off when it is full. The upper drain hole obstruction might be causing most of the leakage problem. Also make sure the unit is level left to right. If the left side (left as viewed from the back) is lower than the right side (as view from the back) the water in the upper drip tray might not flow to the drain hole properly and might overflow. You should also vacuum and clean the upper plastis filter screen (pull it out from the top back of the unit). Before closing the right side panel, you might want to vacuum and clean the lower warm air radiator, be careful not to damage the fins. Again before you start any of this, UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST. This might be easier than packing and sending the over 90 pounds unit to an out of town service center. I understand some service centers might charge $100 for a simple cleaning. Consult a trained technician if you don't have the skill to do this. Do this procedure at your own risk because I am not sure if it might void you warranty. Again UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST before you start.

SOURCE: delonghi PAC F10 air conditioner doesn't seem to be cooling

It could well be low on refrigerant, as well as a multitude of other possibilities. I'd have it serviced by a pro.

SOURCE: DeLonghi Pinguino PAC CT90 It is less than a year has quit coolin

Read instructions and see if it says anything about cleaning or filters. A.C units **** air in and there is a filter that probably needs cleaned.Also,while cooling, the vent to the outside should put out warm air. Also, if it is less than a year old, contact the manufacturer and they should help you out. Good luck.

In the summer i get 30 mpg ,in the winter i get 22 mpg any ideas on how to get 30 mpg year round ? it came from florida. ive changed the plugs and the air filter


Depends on when you live, if your state uses different fuel formulations for summer and winter, like California, not much can be done, the areated fuel is not as efficient.

How large a space are you hoping to cool? One room? One LARGE room? One SMALL room? One floor of a two-story house? A whole four-story house?

What's your climate like where you live? Very hot, dry, year-round? Cool most of the year but two weeks of hot during the summer? Just a little too warm in summer? Blazing hot all summer, including nighttime?

How's the insulation in the building you want to cool? Is it a plain steel building with no insulation? Is it a trailer? Is it a frame house with 4" walls and R13 fiberglass insulation? An old frame house with no insulation? An adobe building? A timberframe house with 8" of polyisocyanurate foam insulation?

All these are important to know when you select an air conditioner.

For most of the USA, assuming a frame house with 4" of fiberglass insulation, a 10,000BTU air conditioner will cool one large room or two small rooms pretty well, or a 5,000BTU AC will do one medium-sized room. Different places, and different house designs, and different types & amounts of insulation, will all have a profound effect on how much AC you need/want.

What should I do in order to make sure my dog house stays cool in the summer?


In order to keep your dog's house cool during hot summer days, consider to do the following:
  • Place the dog house in the shade so it doesn't get too hot from the sun.
  • Make sure that the house is ventilated so warm air can come out.
  • If it gets really hot inside the house, you should put a fan to cool the house down or buy a small air conditioning unit made for dog houses.
  • Place a cooling mat on the ground of the house. This will help the dog to cool down during the hot summer days.

I agree with you. The foam insulation should only be on the Hot Water side. The cold water side doesn't make any difference, as that temperature rarely changes in California.

Hello, I bought a Whirpool refrigerator about a year ago and it has worked reasonably well. Since this summer, which has been hot and humid, every time I open or close the freezer door, the rubber along...


It's possible that it could be from the humidity.. If it is the rubber itself making the noise, try applying some vaseline to the face of the gasket on the hinge edge of the door. The factory lubricates the gaskets in a similar manner and it is common for it to get cleaned off by the consumer. It is good practice to keep both doors lubricated the same way to prevent the gaskets from getting stretched at the corners as this is a pinch point..
Good luck with this and let me know if you have any other questions or problems!!

New dryer keep blowing 30 amp fuses


your problem (especially if you are using screw-in "plug fuses") i.e. BUSS fuses and cartridge fuses they get hot and with time the insulating disc that insulates hot from neutral (grnd) breaks down and with dryer current draw it arcs over and in summer its more humid which contributes to moisture,have a new sub(pony) panel if you have no room for another 240volt circuit in your main panel,that should cure your trouble

Hot poinbt gas stove , mouse inside,


We had this happen recently. The smell of urine got to be too much. My wife wouldn't even go into the kitchen. I took the stove apart. the insulation under the range, which is where he was living, was soaked in urine and **** .I removed all the insulation. Spoke to a repair man. Replaced insulation with pink house fiberglas insuation and gave it a good cleaning. Smeel is gone. Repairman said this happens all the time and is a an easy but labor-intensive job. Call someone to do it if you aren't comfortable taking your stove apart.
